Recycling

The City of Gallatin offers recycling options at three different locations.  The location at the Long Hollow Pike Public Works facility is available to City of Gallatin residents only:

  • Glass bottles, plastic, cardboard, newspaper, tin and aluminum may be dropped off in bins located behind the Public Works Office at
    641 Long Hollow Pike.
  • Bins for newspapers, magazines, steel and aluminum cans are located next to the Gallatin Public Utilities Office at 239 Hancock Street.
  • Magazines and newspapers may be dropped off in bins at the Gallatin Civic Center, 210 Albert Gallatin Avenue.

“We encourage people to take their recyclable items to the bins,” Mayor Jo Ann Graves said.  “Recycling reduces the waste stream and helps us conserve resources.”

Each person in America generates an estimated 4.5 pounds of garbage every day, according to Keep America Beautiful.  Recycling reduces the need for landfilling and incineration, prevents pollution, decreases greenhouse gas emissions, conserves natural resources and saves energy.

For more information about the City’s recycling services, contact the Public Works office at 451-5909.
